From the pre-pandemic reviews I can only surmise that this place has not fully recovered or the chef left. For a nice setting with outside seating and a decent ambience (marred somewhat by blaring a somewhat awkward playlist), this place could do a lot more...than struggle to serve an edible burger. Much of the pretty basic food (burgers and wings) we ordered can't be that hard to get right in a place like NYC. But from the food we got, it must be harder than it looks. The burgers were overcooked, bland and sorry. The wings were boring. I'll leave it at that. Within 3 mins of the place there is a McDonald's, Taco Bell, Chick fil a and if you're really in the mood, Shake Shack as well. Just keep walking.More

Two oldies in a young bar A nice wine bar near Carnegie Hall. The concert was at 8 so when we walked in, it’s after work crowds and very noisy. Service is quick and to the point. The few items we ordered are really good....I tried their house wine: Red Diamond Cab Sauv and Proverb Sauvignon Blanc (?) both are pretty decent and will have it again.More

Stopped here after a show for a night cap. The Smokey whiskey sour was fantastic. We then decided to stay a bit longer and enjoyed the bourbon special. Ralph was an attentive and fantastic bar tender.

Family favorite pub near Columbus Circle. Great menu and atmosphere. Gets very crowded but worth the wait.

We were looking for a bar after visiting Lincoln Centre and stumbled on The Ivy. Welcomed in by the friendly waitress and advised on the happy hour drinks by the barman. Downed our cocktails and decided to have food as the girls at the next...table had just been served theirs. Food and drink excellent as was the service .. nice atmosphere with good music and what is known in USA as football on the telly. Would definitely go back next time we're in NYC.More

We went to the Ivy Bar &Grill in the evening. It was noisy (but only people at the bar, very few diners) so went to the back. The light was so dim I had to put on the torch from my phone to read the...menu. The menu was limited for a place called a Grill. My husband wanted a salmon burger with rice - they had run out of rice (it was 7pm!) and my husband was disappointed. I ordered a burger and fries. The fries were burnt but the burger was fine. The service was below what we would expect in America (we are English) - the waitress was having a lot of fun dancing but little else. No one said goodbye or any of the usual niceties. And it wasn’t cheap - $80 for 2 burgers and 2 glasses of wineMore

Popped into Ivy to break up site seeing fatigue, glad we did. Lovely atmosphere. Got a table no problem as it was late afternoon, from 5pm it filled up quickly with after work drinkers changed to a more 'Sex in the City' type of bar...very lively. Stayed for more drinks & decided to have food, sliders (mini burgers) & burrito were delicious. Staff were attentive & friendly, made to feel very welcome. Well worth the tipMore
